In 2021 over 40 local people are hoping to trek through the Jordan Desert to raise funds for the Salisbury District Hospital Stars Appeal.
The Trek to Petra is the latest charity Trek to take place following previous including trekking the Great Wall of China last time around.
Each Trekker aims to raise at least £1650 for the hospital charity and although the funds are needed more this year than ever before, it’s also been a hard year for fundraising.
Unperturbed by this, a group of trekkers organised a virtual auction earlier this year, it was such a success that they are doing it again!
There are some great one-off items up for grabs, maybe they could make a fantastic Christmas present… There are 24 items up for auction including; signed Doctor Who photos, Swarovski Christmas Bauble and a Dolce Gusto Coffee machine and Pods.
The auction runs on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/HJMPetraTrek/ from October 1st until 6 pm on 11th October. All bids are via the Facebook page and as with a normal auction, only the highest bidder pays.
Everything raised will go straight to the Stars Appeal to help them as they support patients and staff at Salisbury District Hospital. http://www.starsappeal.org/
